More Fighters Being Added to EA Sports UFC

Posted January 20th, 2015 at 1:30 pm


The winner of Best Post-Release Support in the 2014 Pastapadre Community Awards isn’t done yet! To date 18 fighters have been added to the roster in EA Sports UFC. They’ve made it in by piggybacking six patches over the first six months of the game’s release.

At least three more fighters are on the way and soon. The company has announced Rafael dos Anjos (fighting Anthony Pettis at UFC 185 in March), Eddie Alvarez, and Holly Holm (fighting at UFC 184 next month) will be coming to the product. Holm will make it eight fighters in the women’s bantamweight division. With previous fighter announcements the update delivering them has generally arrived the following week.

EA Sports UFC is currently free for EA Access subscribers on Xbox One. It was also made available for under $15 on both Xbox One and PS4 over the week of Black Friday, so there have been great opportunities to take a chance on a game that has improved greatly and offers relevancy that extends well beyond the traditional yearly-released sports games.

[Update] Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (fighting on Fox this Saturday) will also be added. The patch is coming sooner than anticipated it’ll be tomorrow, January 21.
